Ngayon ginawang legal ang diborsyo sa Malta, mukhang tayo na ang iniiwan na wala pang divorce law

Malta says “yes” to divorce, “yes” to secularism 

Maltese say yes to divorce

Now that leaves the Philippines as the only country in the civilised world WITHOUT a divorce law.  Can one say that with feigned pride while many Pinoy couples without the wherewithal to procure expensive (and lengthy) annulments continue to suffer in silence?

My own argument is that it is HIGH TIME that the Philippines has a divorce law of its own.  Pre-Hispanic Philippine society already had provisions for divorce, so that shoots down that all-too-common argument that the practice runs counter to “our culture”. If so, what (or whose) culture?

Huwag mong mahintularin ang maging mangyayari pag ginawang legal ang divorce rito katulad na nasa US na mistulang basta labas-pasukan ang kasal. Huwag naman dapat igawang no-fault ang divorce rito, dapat me mga katibayan na kailangan ipatupad para gawing legal ang petisyon at di maabusuhan ng karaniwang mga kababayan natin.   Dapat naman rin gawang pantay-pantay kung sino puwedeng mag-file roon din, pati din sa pag-aaward ng alimony.

We have to admit, Philippine society has changed by leaps and bounds with the OFW phenomenon and the increased opportunities given to women in the local workplace.  Our newspapers and TV stations keep getting bombarded with news of high-profile celebrity break-ups, often to the tune of multi-million dollar windfalls to lawyers of either parties.

Lahat naman tayo, mga tao lamang, nagbabago kami pagdating sa panahon.  Problema lang, matagal kami pinagpayo ng Simbahang Katoliko na “what God has put together, let no man put asunder”; eh halos walang mga pari roon nakaranas ang kahirapan ng maging isang asawa, sila pa rin kumikita ng timba-timba pag me magpapakasal sa kanilang mga simbahan.

Ngayon man lang, muling gumawa ng unang hakbang ang ating gobyerno patungo roon:

After the RH Bill…this looks like the start of a whole new firestorm set to brew up!!!
